Blauer features a great selection of durable, fire retardent shirts and pants that offers maximun protection in high heat situations. Check out Blauer's 100% cotton NFPA 1975 certified uniforms, which are highly color-fast and will not melt to your skin like polyester blends can when exposed to high heat and flames. Blauer also offers NOMEX, a high-tech polyamide in the Aramid family of fibers. Blauer's NOMEX IIIA is a blend of NOMEX, KEVLAR and carbon fibers. KEVLAR adds strength and durability while carbon prevents static charge of the 100% synthetic fibers. Blauer uses special finishing processes to provide NOMEX IIIA with a soft touch, excellent colorfastness to washing, and permanent flame retardant properties that cannot be washed out or worn away with use. When exposed to very high temperatures and flames, NOMEX IIIA fabric carbonizes and thickens. This reaction increases the protective barrier between the heat source and the wearer. NOMEX IIIA is stable under high heat conditions and will not drip, melt, or burn like ordinary synthetic uniform fabrics made from polyester or nylon.
Flying Cross's line of command sweaters are available in a selection of comfortable and functional styles designed specially for firefighters, EMTs, paramedics and other safety officials.
The wearing of synthetic athletic clothing containing polyester and nylon next to skin has been prohibited from use
by most fire departments. When exposed to extreme heat, flames, or electrical current, clothing containing non FR
synthetic materials like polyester will melt and can fuse to the skin. This essentially creates a molten second skin layer
which can lead to disfiguring burns, even under turnout gear. Thats why Blauer offers a selection of cotton and cotton-rich base layers, a superior choice for public safety professionals; because they will not melt to the skin.
Blauer's mid-layers are most often insulation layers. Check out Blauer's B.Warm and Polartec fleece, which provides excellent insulation and have the wind protection to be worn as outer layers. Blauer sweaters, with and without fleece and Wind Stopper liners, are great looking, machine washable, and the most durable sweaters made. Layering is here to stay because it offers users the flexibility of adding or deleting layers as the conditions change. Blauer offers various fleeces, soft shells, sweaters, and wind liners that can alternate between insulating and outer layers.
In 2006, the ISEA high visibility committee which created ANSI 107 was approached by first responders who testified that the 107 standard failed to meet their specific needs. After review of their concerns, the committee created a set of performance criteria and guidelines for the selection, design, and wearing of high visibility public safety vests. Their reasoning was that the vest was the most critical piece of equipment for roadside visibility and it should work for them and not against them. This prompted Blauer to add optional features such as a breakaway design for instantaneous removal of the vest. The overall length and cut of the vest was changed to make it form fitting, even for women and smaller people, which prevents the vest from interfering with equipment. ANSI 207 matches the photometric protective level of ANSI 107 for both background and reflective materials. It also makes special allowances for agency identification. To address the issue of equipment safety, ANSI 207 reduces the requirement for background visibility comfortably material from the previous 107 class II requirement of 775 sq. inches to 450 square inches. This compromise was necessary in order to fit the vests comfortably above the equipment belts, and for the proper fit of smaller individuals.
